The Man Who Walked Through Walls The excellent Monsieur Dutilleul has always been able to pass through walls, but has never seen the point of his gift, given the general availability of doors. One day, however, his tyrannical boss drives him to desperate, creative measures; he develops a taste for intramural travel and becomes something of a show-off. Full description

Review:

'The greatest French writer of the day'
— Georges Simenon

'I have fallen utterly, completely and eternally in love with this writer. And, as with all true love, I am neither ashamed nor afraid to declare it to the world.'

--Nick Lezard, Guardian

All of his writings are characterized by their irony, humour and realism, and are concerned with unearthing and examining ... the workings of society and ordinary people's darker motives. --www.bloggerel.com

About the Author:

MARCEL AYMÉ was born in Joigny, France in 1902. Following his studies at the Collège de Dole he moved to Paris and worked, most notably, as a journalist. Aymé was able to dedicate himself entirely to literature following the success of The Green Mare, a dark satire on sexuality published in 1933. Following the German occupation and the French resistance, Aymé's ironic, and often disillusioned perception of the state of affairs in France during this period, produced a body of work that is still placed at the forefront of twentieth century French literature. Marcel Aymé died in Paris in 1967.
